no rose you dont get to sign the base as it has to go in the annealing kiln think thats what its called. this takes a while so the just put a kings lynne sticker on it and send you it. they also make one at the same time you pick both colours and you keep both. would love to do it again

That's very nice Stew.  How long did it take to make and had you done anything like this before (I'm thinking about my next birthday!).

Well, it sounds like a great day out and you've got a great reminder of it.  Yep, I must definitely try that some time.
